Grant Summary

$50,000 over 12 months to Purdue University to support the Cornerstone Integrated Liberal Arts program, designed to provide pre-professional students – who are the majority of the student population at Purdue – with a coherent sequence of liberal arts courses aligned with their majors and interests. The bulk of the grant will be used to initiate replication of the Cornerstone model at other large public or private universities. Grant resources will also be used to augment and scale up the civic education component of the Cornerstone curriculum.
